I’d like to extend our sincere sympathy to the family of Claude Dale Smootz, 86, of Esko who passed away Thursday, Jan. 14, 2010, at his home. He was active with the Carlton County Retired Educators group and volunteered at the Little Red Schoolhouse at the County Fair in Barnum each year, where his services were really appreciated. We’ll miss him.
